To be honest, over the last couple weeks I haven't been 100%. I've been feeling a little lost actually.
My friend Chelsea said something that really resonated with me which was, "I feel like in everyone's life there are things that arise that you need to figure out how to process in some way because you can't keep them inside you or else it won't be healthy. For me, writing is the way in which I process the fluttery emotions in my stomach and my heart that I don't know how to deal with otherwise. I can't actually work through the emotion until I write about it." Thinking about this and after a good talk with my dad, I flipped open my journal and let my thoughts and feelings flow freely.
The fog cleared, I relaxed and now I feel refreshed. I allowed myself to be understood. I tapped into the relationship between my mind and my heart and for me, that is best expressed through writing.
When I speak out loud I don't always feel like I can articulate myself the same as when I take the time to write. I think it's the patience involved with being alone with my thoughts.
How do you process? I'd love to hear about what that space is like for you.
